Senior Frontend Engineer


About Us
Transcarent is a fast growing digital health startup funded by top tier investors like General Catalyst and 7WireVentures. We were founded by the same team behind Livongo, a chronic disease management digital health company, which exited for $18.5B to Teladoc in 2020. Transcarent’s mission is to transform the quality of care and affordability for the entire employee base. 

Why Transcarent?
Work with purpose. Join us in empowering consumers with better information and service so they can make the best health and care choices for themselves. You will be part of a world-class founding team with deep expertise in health care and tech and several IPOs and Acquisitions in their past.
Be an early part of our founding product team to shape our product strategy, experience and culture.

The Opportunity
The United States spends twice as much as the average OECD country, and yet has the most confusing, complex and costly systems; even as consumer satisfaction with the health insurance and hospital industry continues to remain low.  This is not sustainable, and it will require a different approach.

Health care must be redesigned around the consumer, and their needs, so they are fully in charge of their health and care decisions. We’ve bundled together commonly used services that members can now access through one simple and connected digital interface that delivers full transparency on quality and cost data on doctors, facilities and medical procedures.
About this role
We work with employers (our clients), employees (our members), and partners (our providers) to deliver seamless care to our members. We are redesigning this experience to be frictionless and fully integrated, so you can talk to a doctor, make appointments, get your medications, etc. with a single click.  We care deeply about building an intuitive and delightful experience - both online and offline. You will define and drive our member focussed product offering and create an industry-leading health-care experience.

In this role, you will...

Have a broad experience with the modern javascript ecosystem
This includes Typescript, React, Graphql, Jest, and Webpack. You will evolve the architecture to ensure that our technology approach meets short-term agility needs and sets us up to scale long term.

Have a strong understanding of web performance and tooling
You know what metrics matter to ensure users have the highest quality experience possible, and are committed to measuring and mitigating bottlenecks that slow us down.

Pride yourself in delivering next level user experiences that redefine modern application design trends
By building a cohesive design system, you take the product experience to new heights, ensuring users are delighted and empowered by our brand. You know the power and pitfalls of CSS and know what it takes to keep things maintainable. You understand the power of transitions and animation to provide rich interactions, and also when not to use them.

Have fundamental knowledge of the asynchronous nature of web applications
You understand how to manage server/client communications with resilience.

Communicate and collaborate as a member of a high performance team
You are able to give critical feedback to your peers to ensure the team is thriving in a fast paced environment. You recognize you have a lot to teach and learn as the codebase grows with the product. You embrace that your success is the success of the team.

About You
